MLB Star Aaron Boone Puts Scottsdale Home on the Market

MLB Star Aaron Boone Puts Scottsdale Home on the Market

Former Major League Baseball player Aaron Boone has put his 5,850-square-foot Scottsdale home up for sale, with an asking price of just under $2.7 million.

Built in 2006, the house has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as ample living space. “It’s a huge house,” Boone’s listing agent, Natasha Greenhalgh, told Realtor.com. “The house has a lot of spaces, so you have a lot of flexibility to make those spaces however you want.”

Design-wise, the home features wood-beamed ceilings, arched doorways and a neutral, desert-inspired palette.

The house, located in the exclusive Silverleaf village, is nestled at the base of the McDowell Mountains on a nearly half-acre lot offering unobstructed mountain views.

The gated community offers parks, a golf course, a pool and a spa. “It’s very much a family-type environment,” said Greenhalgh. More adult-friendly activities include regular wine dinners and yoga classes.

 

Celebrity Style

Even if you don’t have a few million to drop on a new house, you can still draw some inspiration from some celebrity homes like Boone’s.

Boone actually renovated his home, which was originally a Tuscan style, to have more modern fixtures in the interior. That includes funky bare-bulb lighting pieces and contrasting cabinetry in the kitchen. “They did a really good job of making the house contemporary but also doing things to keep the warmth, so it doesn’t have a cold, metal-type feel,” Greenhalgh said.

If you are hoping to give your home a celebrity feel, there’s no better place to start than the kitchen, which has been transformed from a purely functional space to an entertaining showpiece in most high-end homes. You can even browse some photos of celebrity kitchens recently posted on the Elle Decor site for inspiration.

Gorgeous built-in cabinetry (cabinets can either be freestanding or built-in — the latter are usually custom fitted and fixed into place) forms the centerpiece of most of these kitchens, but high-end appliances and unique accessories are what round out their luxurious appeal.
